Wealth of Story Behind Cap-J
itol Entered by French
Marshal Foeh
i "Strasbourg was a town of Ger- i
I many, the eapitul ot' the Imperial j
| Province of Alsace-Lorraine, and aj
fortress of the first rank." So the!
used to describe it, and j
they would assuredly go on to tell,
that it is situated ftt a fertile plain j
at the junction of the 111 and the j
Breusch, some 370 miles southwest !
of Berlin and £o miles east of the
French frontier. After all such a j
description, for conciseness, at. any '
rate, could not well be improved j
upon; but there is a wealth of story j
behind it all. The 111 and the I
Breusch, as they have flowed to-1
gether at Strasbourg through all the |
j centuries, have seen much history, j
! They are undoubtedly the oldest |
features in the old town, although]
their actual waters may have been i
ever the most transient of visitors, j
They were there before Strasbourg, t
They were there when the Bo man |
legions marched through tlie passes j
of the Vosses on to the "fertile!
plain" and captured the Celtic settle-!
ment which spread itself over the]
land where Strasbourg now stands.;
and they are there to-day, joining!
hands and moving on together to-j
ward the Ithine.
The Romans, as was so generally]
their custom, replaced the Celtic,
settlements with a fortified station, i
They guve it the name of Argon- j
toratum, and in after years it be
came an important military post and i
the headquarters of the Eighth he-,
gioa. It was here that the Emperor I
Julian, for a time in the fourth con-]
ftiry, stemmed the tide of the liar- j
barian invasion by a decisive vie-,
tory over the Alemanni; hut, about,
fifty years afterward. Argentora
•tuii and the whole district now,
called Alsace fell into the hands of!
that people. Later on, toward the .
end of the fifth century, the town.,
passed into the possession of the
Franks, and it vaa the Franks who I
gave it tts "resent name, Chris-j;
tianitv of course, came with < lovis,;
the Frank; and it was chiefly in ,
consequence of its ecclesiastical dif-j
ficulties that Strasbourg gained such •
prominence in mediaeval times. The]
Bishops of Strasbourg were princes,
of the church, not at all given to,
democratic views, and they early te!l|
foul of the good citizens of the town.]
Strasbourg had prospered as the;
I years had passed. Its citizens had
grown wealthy, and the more the;
Bishop tried to assert his authority]
the more firmly were the citizens j
convinced that such ecclesiastical |
rule was Inconsistent with their toll!
development. And so from protest i
added to protest thev went io open]
warfare. The conflict was finally |
decided, by the battle of Oberhaus- (
bergen in favor of the citizens, in
1262. and Strasbourg gained a full;
recognition of its position as a tree,
imperial city, a status which had
been conferred upon it by the Ger-•
man King. Henry of Swabiu.
Once freed from the dominance!
of the church, Strasbourg set abouti
organizing an internal revolution.,
Its citizens itad always favored tlie|
democratic view of th'ngs, and the
government of the city was not dem
ocratic enough to satisfy them, so,
toward the middle of the fourteenth
century they secured the admission j
of the guilds to the municipal coun-,
cils. Thereafter Strasbourg flour
ished vnore than ever, and when it !
had to make the choice between the,
old and the reformed religion in the j
sixteenth century, it listened readily,
to the preaching of Martin Bueer, |
accepted the teachings of the lie
formation, and, through all the,
troubles which followed, was
culiarly immune from the miseries;
endured bv so many of its neighbors,!
far and near. So its history comes]
down to the memorable day in 1681, ,
I when Louis XIV. marched against
the city and not only seized it. but:
i in spite of all protests, kept poses
'■ sion of it, and hnd his title con-i
I firmed and recognized by the Peace;
of Hyswick in 1697.' The next great]
I incident in the history of Stras- ]
I bourg was its siege and capture by ]
the Prussians in the Franco-Prus
sian war of 1870-71. The siege
lasted seven weeks, and the city, I
with its garrison of 17.000 men, fin-j
ally surrendered on September 28,
! 1870. As to the rest of the story
the world is perhaps more generally J
familiar with it than with the story i
j of most cities. —Christian Science-]

Task Easier
The lifting of restrictions on mer
chants and merchandise wifli the
ending of the war, have malle the
task of Christmas shopping easy for
patrons ud merchants. The ban
on many articles much desired by
the shoppers, but hitherto tabooed |
i because of their being inessential to I
| the wVnir.?; of the \v;ir, has been
i lifted, and householders find almost I
normal condition under which to do!
their shopping.
Merchants ure gratified over the]
' apparent willingness of the eon-
I suniers to "do their Christmas!
i shopping early."' Thousands of
j article.* for Christmas use, which in
former years would have been pur
chased at the last minute of busi
ness before Christmas, and iieing
! purchased in local stores every day
i The campaign of publicity waged
j by various brunches of the federal
war government, has instilled a
knogledge of the edviaability of
' early Christmas shopping every
: where, and it is readily apparent in
I the increased volume of buying be
ing done a month before Christmas.
Shopping Earlier
While the armistice has been
| signed and employers of labor are
I looking forward to a relief in the
! labor market, the early shopping
i this year has been, and merchants
| expect will continue to be, highly
1 instrumental in solving the labor
I problem. With extra clerks and de
! livery labor hard to secure, it is
1 hoped that the early shopping will
continue to such an detent that the
■ usual great rush of orders will be
eliminated at the last minute, and
I the usual necessity for a great num
ber of extra clerks and help, will be
! eliminated this year. ,
Merchants report that in spite of
the limited closing hours, which
confines their business to the hours
between 9 and 5.30 o'clock and 9
until 9 o'clock on Saturdays, neces
i sary because of the necessity for
I fuel conservation, the receipts from
business uansacted daily arc larger

I years.

Persius Lays Bare
German Navy Bluff
London. Captain Persius, the
German naval critic, chose the 1110-
I inent when the finest vessels of the
| German navy were to be sui rendered
| to tbe Allies to publish In the Berlin
1 Tagebiutt an article containing reve
! lotions regarding the German fleet,
i Captain Persius says the hope that
| tho German fleet would be able In
[ a second Sltagerrak battle to beat
I the British fleet rested upon the bluff
'.and lies of the naval authorities.
! In August, 1914, Germany had
j about one million tonnage in war
i ships, he says, while Great llritain
had more than double that, and, j
I thanks to the mistakes of von Tir-!
j pitz, the Gorman material was quite I
i inferior to the British. In tho Ska-1
Igerrak battle, he declares the Ger-j
I man fleet was saved front destruc-1
tton party by good leadership and j
I partly by favorable weather condi-
Itions. Had the weather been clear
|or Admiral von Scheer's leadership
less able, the destruction of the
| whole German navy wostbl have re-
I suited. The long-range British guns
|would have completely smashed tho
i lighter-armed German ships. As it
• was, the losses of the German fleet
•were enormous, and on June 1. Cap
-1 tain Persius says, it was clear to
I every thinking man that the Skager
jrak battle must be the only general
j naval engagement of the war.
On all sides, continues the writer,
; Admiral von Tirpitz was advised to
construct only submarines, but lie!
j remained obstinate. On October I,]
; 1915, several members of the Relchs- f
| tag made an earnest appeal to the;
;nrmy command —not to the nava'l
; staff—with the result that an order I
was issued terminating the construe-1
| tion of battleships in order that the!
j material might be used for the mak-I
|ing of U-boats. In the meantime so
great a scarcity of material had,
'arisen that it became necessary to j
i disarm a number of the battleships
land take the metal. In this manner. !
|at the of 1916, twenty-|
jthre- battleships had been disarmed.!
jits well as one newly-built cruiser.
| At the beginning of this year, Cap- '
i tain Persius states, the German navy j
I consisted only of dreadnoughts and
[battleships of the Helgoland. Kaiser
and Markgraf types, and some few!
I battle cruisers. All the ships which I
jvon Tirpitz had constructed from i
'1897 to 1906, at a cost of innumera- j
! blc millions, had been destroyed, and ;
the U-hcats that had been construct- 1
led had proved unable to fight against
j British warships.
Admiral von Capelle during .his
period as head of the navy, says Cap- j
[tain Persius, constructed very few
submarines, work being continued
I only on the construction of subma
rines of the large type, but in official
I quarters it was still stated that Ger
| many possessed an enormous nuni
i her of U-.boats, and that the losses
I were virtually nil. .
That was not true, the writer ntl-
Imlts. In 1917. lie staes, eighty
[ three submarines were constructed,
j while sixty-six were destroyed. In
[April, 1917, Germany bad 120 stibma-
I lines and in October 140. In Fchru
j ary, 1918, she had 130, and in June
of the same year 113. according to
Captain Persius' figures,
j Only a sma'l percentage of these
submarines were actively operating
[at any given time. Captain Persius
[ declares In January, 1917, for in
| stance, when conditions wore fa vo ra
il ble for submarine work, only 12 per
| cent, were active, while 30 pel - cent.
I I were in harbor, 38 per cent, were
('[under repairs, nnd 20 per cent, were
- 1 j "incapacitated." Submarine trews,
t' | lie says, were not sufficiently educat
-! Ed and trained, and they looked with
-[distrust upon the weapon. In the
■'Oast months, be reveals, it was very
f I difficult to get men for submarine
"'work, as experienced seamen looked
"! upon tho submarine warfare as po
' litirnl stupidity.
